    I bought a browning gold a few years ago in 3 1/2. I thought i needed a 3 1/2 but as time went on I realized I really didn't need it, I use a SKB o/u 12 gauge and usually only use 2 3/4 inch shells now. I kept missing ducks with the 3 1/2 '' so I asked a buddy of mine about it and he told me I was over shooting and needed to use a 2 3/4 and it worked. Just something that worked for me.

    I have a Browning BPS. Best gun Ive had yet. Seen its share of days in the field, and its still going strong. No complaints at all!

    BJ Gatley got it right.
    Ford, Chevy, Dodge, BMW, Cadillac, Audi, Toyota, Kia, Honda, Ferrari, Mini Cooper, ........ you can't even begin to imagine the arguments for any automobile or firearm. What really matters is how the gun fits you. If your shotgun is pointing where you are looking when you pull the trigger you will be much more successful in hitting your target. Buy the shotgun that fits you best. It takes almost as much time and research and much less guessing as finding a great pup.

    Personal choice, but I sure like a synthetic stock for waterfowling. I am pretty tough on a gun. Been shooting a Benelli for the last 15 years, thousands of rounds, mud, water, driven hard put away wet at times, pretty BULLET PROOF (couldn't help myself). I do think some of the newer guns have less recoil. I may be in the market as well. Got some shoulder issues.

    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.
